[Let's all agree this is speculation. In fact, let us recognize that our entire understanding of history and today's power structure is tainted.] Straight from wikipedia.... Wouldn't it be crazy... if all wars were the product of rich mother fuckers either establishing financial dominance through debt or playing real-life risk with one another? Fund a disaster to irritate the masses, give them an enemy to visualize and viola. Are there any massive corporations today that haven't been bought out? Do you think it even matters what publicly-accessible documentation says the owners are? It really goes to show you... we don't know jack. If any of you are educated on the subject... what names have you heard associated with the world bank, IMF etc.?
